I didn't bought a Permanent Vacation record for ages but when I saw this sleeve, I knew I had to hear the EP. Dollkraut was unknown for me and maybe he is for you. So, I (strongly) suggest you check his releases, especialy The zero EP on The Gym, the Blackbox EP on Charlois and the Fire EP on Permanent Vacation (with a superb remix by Invisible Conga People). Think classic Detroit electro infused with krautrock in a spaghetti western where indians would be replaced by robots. After a fistful of 12", it's album time for him (Ask your favorite record dealer asap). Here is a apetizer for the LP to come in a few days in all good records stores :
And for the edit freaks, you can taste his cosmic version of this italian track :
THE LIMITED EDITIONS 7" AND 12" OF VIDAL BENJAMIN PRESENTE DISCO SYMPATHIE ARE OUT AND THERE ARE SO GOOD!!!!
Disco Sympathie is a collection of obscure French disco, boogie and synth wave jams put together by renowned Parisian crate digger Vidal Benjamin. Vidal makes us rediscover the sound that was so characteristic of a certain early eighties french scene: wacky, happy, dancing and at times even poetic.
This 7" and this 12" are a preview of the release in october of the compilation Disco Sympathie on Versatile Records.
On the 7" vinyl sampler
SIDE A: Marc Chantereau - "Gibraltar" (Jeff Gets A Single Room! edit)
SIDE B: Raymonde Et Les Moutards - "Y'en A Marre" (Jean Marc Misere Pure Beat edit)
